Music Software : Ableton Live 8 - macmusicAbleton unveils Live 8 and Suite 8 which enhance their vision of creative, real-time digital music with a wealth of new techniques, effects and most-wanted workflow improvements.

• New warping engine: warp audio events by adjusting the events on the timeline, updated Beats Warp Mode, new Complex Warp Mode, slice audio files to MIDI tracks based on transients
• Looper: classic sound-on-sound looping without the limitations of a hardware device. Record, overdub, undo and more without touching the computer. "First loop sync," simple loop management

• Workflow enhancements: including real-time crossfades in the Arrangement View, enhanced MIDI editing, group tracks, multiple track selection, a screen magnifier and more
